EZ-BOARD SC589 pre-flashed with linux rootfs ?

Hi, I just started a Linux kernel on the board and wanted to let it fail-boot, but somehow it did find a root partition at SPI offset 0x600000 (mtd2) and booted properly ! Was there a root-fs (jffs2) pre-flashed, because I cannot remember that I did flash it !

  • Hi Robert,

    There is a initramfs based root file system attached to the Linux kernel image by default configuration. Linux always loads rootfs from the intiramfs in this case. If you wish to fail-boot a Linux kernel, please remove the initramfs support from both the buildroot and Linux kernel and rebuild the uImage.
